Basil Chicken Stir-Fry

This easy stir-fry is a favorite in our house. It has really simple ingredients but the flavors all together are a hit. This is actually one of like three meals my husband learned to make on his own, so that is rock solid proof that it’s easy. And as usual, I like to make some […]

J’s On My Feet

Michael Jordan’s shoes are no stranger to our household, however it’s my husband owns all 500 pairs of them (before you jump to conclusion, 500 is an exaggeration-its more like 300). He kind of inspired me to try something new so I asked for a pair for my birthday (which hilariously hasn’t even past yet, […]

Birchbox Favorites

Have you ever heard of Birchbox? I hadn’t before I started reading blogs. Basically its a monthly perscription for beauty products. Every month they send you a little box with 5 samples of beauty products ranging from lip gloss, to nail polish, to eye liner and much more. Its only 10 bucks so I decided […]

Book Worm

I love reading. I usually cycle through different phases though. Some months I won’t read anything at all and then other months I will devour several books. I end up reading a lot in the summer for some reason, maybe because there’s never anything good to watch on TV. I was inspired to review/recommend some […]

Bangles, Watches, and Chains. Oh My!

(above: Watch-Etsy, bow bangle-Kate Spade Outlet, Cream and gold bangle-old) I love accessorizing. I’m not really attracted to many bold, flashy clothes so most of my closet is pretty plain. When I go into a store I usually come out with some variation of something I already have. Another solid color T-shirt or another striped […]

Empire State of Mind: The Food

While food is on our brain this week, I thought I would look back at some of the amazing food we had in New York. Our actual first meal in New York was a deliciously oily piece of pizza which I regrettably didn’t take a picture of, but you will just have to take my […]

True Confessions

This looks amazing doesn’t it? It was inspired by this recipe that I found on Pinterest. It’s blackberry chipotle chicken with onions and spinach over a baked sweet potato. But I’m not going to give you the recipe. The problem is…it actually wasn’t that good. It was such a shame since the pictures turned out […]

The Grey T

I wasn’t sure if  I was going to venture into blogging about my love for fashion, mostly because I don’t like taking pictures of myself but also because I wouldn’t exactly call myself a fashionista (do fashion people even call themselves that?). Bloggers like Lauren Elizabeth give me hope that you can blog about your […]

The Flea

I don’t know about you but there is nothing better than finding an absolute gem at a flea market or garage sale for 5 bucks. A great find becomes an even greater find when you get it for a great price. Last saturday I got a chance to go to the Brooklyn Flea!!! Well…it wasn’t […]
